Ford's first generation Mustang had its initial public viewing at the New York World's Fair of April 1964. It was the first of the so-called 'pony' cars that subsequently included the Chevy Camaro, AMC Javelin and revamped Chrysler Barracuda. It also inspired such Coupes from elsewhere in the world as the Ford Capri and Toyota Celica. It was styled in house under the direction of Joe Oros and utilised as many components as possible from the existing Falcon and Fairlane models, in order to minimise cost. Soon available in Coupe, Convertible and Fastback guise, it could be bought with a range of straight-six and V8 engines. The sales forecast for year one was c.100,000 units - this figure was surpassed in three months.
The left-hand drive Mustang Convertible now offered is a 1967 example equipped the 4.7-litre (289ci) V8 engine driving through the optional three-speed automatic transmission. It is painted in Acapulco Metallic Blue and trimmed in Black leather, and was imported from Arizona in the USA on behalf of the vendor. He currently considers the Mustang's bodywork, paintwork, interior trim, engine and gearbox to all be in "good" order. The fast Ford's odometer currently displays an unwarranted 60,000 miles and the car is MOT'd until November 21st this year.
PLEASE NOTE: This vehicle has an MOT until November 2013.
